Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) is a five-year project of the Public Health Institute, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Its goal is to strengthen global health professionals, organizations, and the practice of global health through:
• A learning-centered Fellowship and Internship program
• Capacity-building for host organizations
• Knowledge-sharing collaborations between paired academic institutions
STAR is managed by the Public Health Institute and implemented in partnership with Johns Hopkins University (JHU), the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH).

The Camp and Woolsey Fires devastating parts of California are not the first, nor will they be the last of their kind.
California has always had wildfires but what we have seen over the last year (2 out of the 10 worst fires since 1932 have occurred in 2018 alone) will only become more frequent unless the federal, state and local governments implement an integrated plan of action. This must include the private sector, academia, NGOs and the public.
It is often prohibitive for faculty and students from low & low-middle income countries (LLMIC) to attend our annual conference. To help address this problem, CUGH has a LLMIC travel bursary program. We provide travel support for select faculty and students from LLMICs who have been invited to present at CUGH2019. Please support our colleagues and donate to our bursary program. Please see the attached flyer and kindly share it with your network.
CUGH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible in the US.
